A Letter To My Old Life....

Dear Old Life,

I feel it is only fair for me to write you a farewell letter, we have become very well acquainted in the past few years......We have been waiting here at the bus stop of life for 6 years, not really moving anywhere, just waiting.........Waiting for something or someone to pick us up and take us to the place were the fun is.

We have worked hard.....Very hard, cried in the toilets, got annoyed when people didn't do what they are paid to do, voiced opinions only to have then thrown back in our face, we have been shouted at, punched and kicked, been criticised by managers over the small things...When we have tried our best to give 110% and gained no thanks, we have supported other members of staff when they have been unable to cope. We have been good....No we have been excellent at our job!

We have watched from the sidelines as others got married, had babies, met new partners and generally moved on with their lives. We have been happy for them but all the time wondering "When is it my turn?" We have been unhappy and lonely but tried not to show it. We have smiled and laughed on Christmas day and cried Boxing Day. Lived at home and made to feel worthless, thought about the same person who doesn't think about us, been self critical and depressed, but all the time we have patiently waited.........

Well the bus is here, time for us to part, as I pay my fair I wav
e you goodbye, thank you for the experiences you have given me but I can't say I will miss you. Now its time for me to travel to a new destination, to the place were I can be the person I have always wanted to be.....The happy, fun loving person who loves life.......The real me!

Take Care Old Life x
